Modern city

After 1870, Wilhelm II commissioned the Berlin architect, Kröger, to develop the city to make it more prestigious and German in appearance. This new quarter, around the broad avenue Foch, the station and administrative buildings, was built of pink or grey sandstone, granite and basalt.
